The BeagleBoard has a huge open source community. To be effective at using the Beagle you need to learn how work with the community. The purpose of this exercise is to introduce you some of the Beagle communities.

There are two sets of exercises here, one for students taking my class at Rose-Hulman, the other for workshop participants. Pick the one that applies to you.

  1. Create a user name on eLinux.org
  2. Add your name to the ECE497 Contributions and Project Status#Contributions page. No need to add to the Project Status section at this time.
  3. Edit your User page on eLinux and add [[Category:ECE497]] to it. This will make it appear on the Category page. Check out User:Mayhewsw for ideas of what else to put on your User page.
